Former Murray State guard excited to be in 2K16

For any ten to fifteen-year-old kid (gender neutrality is awesome) one of the best, or worst depends on how you look at it, things to do is to spend hours creating a player in Madden to do two things: A) Resemble your real-life self in the best way possible, besides having overly defined biceps, and B) Terrorize your buddies when you put ALL his state up to 99 on everything, including...

Old Dominion’s Crazy NIT Buzzer-Beater Adds To Murray State’s Misery (Video)

One of March’s maddest moments came from the NIT of all places. Old Dominion is moving on to the NIT semifinals after a thrilling 72-69 win over Murray State. The game was exciting from beginning to end, but it’s the finish that has to be seen to believe. With just seconds to play and having to inbound from underneath its own basket, Old Dominion looked like it was going to have...

Try This Murray State Solution: Settle It On the Court

I love March Madness. There’s nothing like watching teams from small conferences battle it out for the opportunity to earn a spot on the big stage. However, I’m not suggesting that the process is perfect. Every year, it seems there’s a No. 1 seed that gets upset in the conference tournament and misses out on a chance to play in the Big Dance. It could happen again this spring...

Solving the Conference Tournament Conundrum

Belmont and Murray State staged the best game of the entire season Saturday night in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament final. Unfortunately, the wrong team won.

Yet, CBS will probably be showing America a room full of dejected Racers next Sunday when the NCAA tournament field is announced. Them’s the...

An Ohio Valley Upset Creates a Not-So-Great Debate For Murray State

The first automatic bid to the 2015 NCAA Tournament was handed out on Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee. The way in which the Belmont Bruins earned their way into the field of 68 could not have been more dramatic. Belmont and its opponent, the Murray State Racers, basically traded basketball haymakers for 40 minutes. The two teams either tossed in one outrageously long three...

John Lollar of Murray State has highest leg kick in the history of leg kicks (VIDEO)

@JDrumUK Murray State pitcher John Lollar has the highest leg kick in the history of baseball on any planet.  It’s science.  He doesn’t have any tendons or ligaments and his body is composed of 40% elastic.  Fine, that’s a lie.  40% elastic? You bought that? Seriously, watch this leg kick and then try to replicate it.  Warning: have plenty of ice and an orthopedic surgeon...

Murray State Pitcher Has One Of Most Insane Leg Kicks Ever Seen (Photo)

John Lollar is more flexible than you. Lollar is a pitcher for the Murray State baseball team, and he’s ascended to relative baseball Internet fame thanks to what he’s able to do with his left leg, specifically during his windup. Jeff Drummond was able to capture Lollar’s crazy windup on film, and it should put yoga instructors (not to mention Orlando Hernandez) to shame. Lollar’s...

Louisville 66 – Murray State 21: Cards Crush Racers

Louisville vs. Murray State: Three Predictions

Petrino Says Murray State Game Will Test His Team’s Maturity

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect I have no problem admitting that I’m totally not a fan of playing FCS opponents each season. That said, I understand the reasoning behind it. Every FBS program needs at least one gimme win and the FCS schools get paid a boatload of money to get their brains beat in. Seeing your team blowout at inferior opponent can be entertaining, especially...
